Located just west of Oak Street, on Palm Street, Saunders Park is tucked away for a quiet, relaxing time at a wonderful park, with easy access via bus, automobile or walking.
Saunders Park offers three picnic areas which can be reserved for family, company, or just friendly functions. These areas offer a variety of seating, from heavy shade to complete sun. There is also a serving shelter for your serving needs, and barbeque pits to cook your choice of picnic. Make your reservations early, this park is extremely popular during the picnic season, and reservations are the only way to ensure your party will have the seating they need.
In addition to the picnic areas which can be reserved, there are first-come-first-serve areas which can be used on an individual basis. These areas can be found scattered through out the park.
